Carson Palmer becomes fourth QB to toss 100 TDs on 2 teams

Carson Palmer becomes fourth QB to toss 100 TDs on 2 teams”

"I've got as much respect and trust in Jared as I've had in any offensive lineman I've ever played with, and I've played with Jared for six years", Palmer said. He hasn't played since spraining a knee in the season opener. "There were spurts in that game that we showed that we're capable of doing it, but we have to do it for four whole quarters, not just the opening drive or a drive here and a drive there".

Quarterback Carson Palmer #3 of the Arizona Cardinals throws a pass during the National Football League game against the Dallas Cowboys at the University of Phoenix Stadium on September 25, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona.

"After watching the film today and watching what happened on Monday, we've got to be better at our technique, we've got to be better physically up front", Boehm said. "He was lights out from start to finish".

No other quarterback has been hit more. He was around the pocket. "He was the quarterback I knew we'd see all year, and we can win with Carson playing like that".

If he can stay healthy.

"The running game was dependent on me", Arians said.

"Just wasn't good enough", Veldheer said after the game, adding that the only way to improve things is to study tape and fix the mistakes.

"A couple of times I didn't get the ball out early or get the ball out fast", Palmer said. "The fact of the matter is he has to get better. Jared is a prideful guy, and I expect nothing less than for him to be in here this week and make some improvements".

"That's Fitz", coach Bruce Arians said. He's got to get his hands on people. "If he gets his hands on people, he's big and strong and won't get bull rushed".

That'll leave the Cardinals offensive line, which also may not have the services of D.J. Humphries, ravaged by injuries entering Week 4. They have been replaced by tackle John Wetzel and guard Alex Boone, who have had mixed performances over the past two weeks.

Assuming the 14-year veteran can register an average of at least 50 receiving yards in the Cardinals' 13 remaining games, he would climb to fourth in career receiving yards by the end of the 2017 season, passing Steve Smith, Tim Brown, Tony Gonzalez and Isaac Bruce in the process.

It didn't help that the Cardinals had a drive of almost nine minutes late in the first quarter and early in the second and came up empty. Humphries (knee) and left guard Mike Iupati (triceps) were limited in practice on Wednesday and both said they are confident they will return to the lineup against the 49ers after missing two games. He was pressured on 23 of his 55 drop backs which was the most he's been under duress in a game since 2009, according to ESPN Stats & Information, and more than the 22 pressures he faced in Arizona's first two games combined.

Kicking for San Francisco, Dawson missed three field goals all of last season.

No one had a better game, though, than Larry Fitzgerald, who tried to will the Cardinals to victory with a huge night, highlighted by a circus catch in traffic for a first down on a third-and-18 play. The shell of Chris Johnson and the Cardinals couldn't run the ball at all; that they managed to keep the game close against Dallas was mostly due to Fitzgerald making catches like this. The Dallas Cowboys were one of the first teams to do that, and the Rams joined that group last season when they moved to Los Angeles.

One consolation for the Cardinals is that no one is dominating the NFC West. Seattle, San Francisco and Arizona are all 1-2.

That statement may be hyperbolic considering Palmer was second in the MVP voting in 2015, but the turnaround was critical, and that type of performance is something a 1-2 Cardinals team needs again Sunday against the 49ers.
